Customer Reviews

They're very light and strong and are holding up well so far.
TK
The problem is they are so lightweight that even in hard soil (not rocks, not roots, just hard dirt) they will bend.
Jeff Pastoor
Holds better than wire stakes that typically come with these tents.

These stakes are hard almuminum, and take hammer hits well. Pulling out of most soils was easy enough. Their shape provides good holding power and easy removal. Where they fall short of Ground Hogs, is their bending point. Wall thickness is thinner, and they will bend even when driven up to their necks. To give the stakes credit, I was loading them very heavily; far more than I could have loaded wire stakes, and others.

Overall, I like them. For only $7 I had to give them a try. I am a recreational camper who doesn't need ultra-reliable stakes, and these were actually pretty good. Probably a good purchase for campers who don't really need eight Ground Hogs (like me).

Those who travel all over, and need reliable stakes to pound into concrete will need Ground Hogs, but for those who need good stakes for regular dirt, these work well.

P.S. I straightened my 2 bent stakes, and they will hold pretty much anything I tie on them. Just not the ridiculous load that originally bent them.

Update Oct., 2010
Just returned from a week-long hammock trip through Arkansas and Texas. I bent the stakes again, by stepping on the guy lines in the dark. Straightened them out by wedging them in between the slats of a picnic table, and bending back. The soil was hard sand, and compacted gravel/sand. They held up okay for the remainder of the trip. As both a tent camper and a hammock camper, I wouldn't choose these stakes again. They are too large for what they do. Spending the time and effort to pound several 7 inch stakes into the ground just to have them bend, isn't worth it. Extraction is easy enough, but they just don't have the strength-to-usefulness ratio right. I'm going to buy Ground Hogs.

I picked these up as an alternative to MSR Groundhogs or Sierra Designs Y-Stakes.

One things I really like about these is that they are long 9" length. My Sierra Design Y-Stakes are only about 6".

After reviewing them, they are all about the same strength. Extremely hard to bend by hand(even my giant hands- I'm 6'4 300+lbs). All the brands performed the same, great. And miles better then the provided stakes with my Kelty Gunnison 4.1.

Is any brand better than the other? Not really. They are made in different lengths by the different brands but that's about it. So pick the length that works for you. Oh, some include a paracord like loop, some don't. Whether that helps your case or not is up to you to decide. Some say it helps when you're pulling them out of the ground.

If you don't want to deal with the y-shape(attaching to the tent is sometimes tricky or frustrating) I would suggest looking at Sierra Design's Hex-Peg stakes or Kelty Nobendium Stakes. The Sierra Design stakes are a bit stronger than the Kelty stakes as I stated in my other reviews.

I bought these for my scouts to use because they were cheaper than MSR groundhogs. They bent every single one (about 12 of them) in non-rocky soil. I thought it was the scouts being extra hard on the stakes. But, when I tried it, I bent them as well, in soil that didn't bend my MSR groundhogs. I have since replaced them with the groundhogs, and they haven't bent any groundhogs yet. I looked up the materials, and these are made from 6061 aluminum and the groundhogs are from a 7000 series aluminum. 6061 is a much softer alloy, that explained why they suck so much. My advice, spend a little more and get the tried and tested originator of this stake design, not these chinese knockoffs.

These tent stakes are awesome! They are incredibly light-weight and I have not bent any of them despite hammering them into hard dirt.

I bought these stakes to replace some crappy ones that came with my tent, and they worked flawlessly. They are astoundingly light and just as astonishingly sturdy.
HOWEVER, do not buy these on Amazon. They cost $3 at Academy Sports and Outdoors, so don't waste your money paying $10 with shipping here on Amazon.

As for the product itself, I would definitely recommend these.

I have both the MSR Ground Hog stakes, and these. These stakes are essentially the same thing, and are a fraction of the price.

Used these guys for 4 nights on Isle Royal with a Hennessey Hammock Expedition.
I only brought two of the 4 with (ultralight ;) ) but I had no problem with them bending.
I hammered them down with rocks when needed.
So...

Pros:
1.Sturdy! Took a few hammerings into some rocky earth.
2.Brightly colored (easy to locate)
3.lightweight
4.notched at the top for tent lines
5.Pretty long at 9 inches
6.pull string for easy removal

Cons:
1.it's uncomfortable to push them into dense ground with your palm. (pad with some fabric or just hit it with a rock)
2.they had a lot of small dents in them by the end of the trip. (not unexpected)

All in all: recommended

These things are the best. They are light, strong, and really hold a tent down. Easy to get in with a hammer, and easy to get out with the pull strings. No complaints.
